30 day song challenge - in ONE day

I'm back from Russia, hurray! I'm also sick at the moment, so I will write about it later. In the meantime, I've been wanting to do this 30-day song challenge for a while now, but I'm not sure I have the patience to do this for a month, so I figure I'll do all 30 of them at once and get it over with.

Day 01 - Your favorite song [at the moment anyway]
Ryan Star "Brand New Day"


Day 02 - Your least favorite song
Paul Young "Every time you go away". It does not deserve a video.

Day 03 - A song that makes you happy
Sukhwinder Singh and Sapna Awasthi "Chaiyya Chaiyya"


Day 04 - A song that makes you sad
k.d. lang "Barefoot"


Day 05 - A song that reminds you of someone
Since I just came back from visiting my grandpa's grave for the first time (and he passed away 14 years ago) here is a song he used to sing to us a lot "Надежда" [Hope]


Day 06 - A song that reminds you of somewhere
Sublime "Summertime"


Day 07 - A song that reminds you of a certain event
Phoenix "1901"


Day 08 - A song that you know all the words to
Fleetwood Mac "Go your own way"


Day 09 - A song that you can dance to
I'll shake my booty to just about anything, but here is one that I'm liking at the moment - Flo Rida "Club Can't Handle Me Right Now"


Day 10 - A song that makes you fall asleep
Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros "Mondo Bongo". It's not that it makes me fall asleep, it's just that it's nice to fall asleep to.


Day 11 - A song from your favorite band
Delerium "Silence". Not sure that they are my favorite, but I do really like their work.


Day 12 - A song from a band you hate
I really hate the Ramones but I love this song ("Needles and Pins")


Day 13 - A song that is a guilty pleasure
Britney Spears "Break the Ice"


Day 14 - A song that no one would expect you to love
I don't think people would expect me to like Nirvana, so here's "The Man Who Sold the World"


Day 15 - A song that describes you
Phish "Waste"



Day 16 - A song that you used to love but now hate
Nelly Furtado's "Promiscuous"


Day 17 - A song that you hear often on the radio
Rolling Stones "Sympathy for the Devil"


Day 18 - A song that you wish you heard on the radio
Gogol Bordello "Through the Roof and Underground"


Day 19 - A song from your favorite album
Dido "Here with Me". I used to really love this album.


Day 20 - A song that you listen to when you’re angry
I don't get angry much, and when I do I am certainly not in the mood for music. But I think this song would really cheer me up and want to kick ass: Lady Gaga "Poker Face"


Day 21 - A song that you listen to when you’re happy
Madonna "Love Profusion"


Day 22 - A song that you listen to when you’re sad
Placebo "Running up the Hill"


Day 23 - A song that you want to play at your wedding
How about a song I MEANT to play at my wedding but didn't? Scorpions "Are you the One?"


Day 24 - A song that you want to play at your funeral
Israel Kamakawiwo'ole "Over the Rainbow"


Day 25 - A song that makes you laugh
Harry Nilsson "Coconut"


Day 26 - A song that you can play on an instrument

can't play anything at all.

Day 27 - A song that you wish you could play
Bob Dylan "One more cup of coffee"
video impossible to find... but here is a "how to" video:


Day 28 - A song that makes you feel guilty
Lady Gaga "Bad Romance"


Day 29 - A song from your childhood
"Kukushka", originally by Victor Zoj of the band Kino, here performed by Zemfira. Ignore the weird video, it's from some Joan of Arc movie.


Day 30 - Your favorite song at this time last year
Jason Mraz "I'm Yours"
